On Thursday I attended my first ever election count! I am a broadcast journalist student so we were able to go the council election. At first not going to lie it was boring but everyone started to perk up towards the end when they announced which candidate was elected. Everyone was surprised when UKIP received so many votes. For example in Ashdown, UKIP beat Labour and Lib Dem. Also in Hollington UKIP beat Conservative and Lib Dem.
I did think it was weird considering everyone was complaining about UKIP and explaining how no one should vote for them. There was even a trend about UKIP on twitter. Yet they still received lots of votes all across England?
Although for the majority of the trip (5 hours) I was bored, towards the end I did have fun!
